I was lucky as a child - I was raised in a family that valued learning. By the time I entered kindergarten I knew how to read, print, and write in cursive. I'm writing stories that I hope will find their way into the hands of an eager reader, ready to embark on an adventure that I've imagined, crafted, and tucked between the covers.
CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS!
Check out my newest blog designed exclusively for The Ghost Writer. You’ll get a glimpse into the process, my life a writer, and you’ll have the opportunity to submit comments and feedback that just might end up on the page!
Book #1 in the series.
Medieval Scotland. Sir Lennox Brodie, a powerful knight, leaves his homeland to fight in the Crusades. It’s a vow he’s bound to fulfill and an escape from the devastation over the death of his wife and two daughters. He returns famous, scarred, and wealthy, with his soul still in tatters.
Lennox encounters Maggie Weaver when she mistakenly enters the sun-dappled glade that belongs to him. The secluded, tranquil spot becomes the backdrop for healing, redemption, and the capacity to love again. It’s also where the unthinkable happens, giving pain and heartache free reign to test their relationship - something not even the strongest knight can protect.

Sir Lennox Brodie’s life as a powerful knight is over. Having fulfilled his oath to the king, he is comfortably settled at the manor house built on his family’s ancestral lands.

The demons of his past have come calling, threatening his idyllic life as he is cast onto the path of a dark and perilous journey. Where will it take him? If he survives the pain and suffering he is forced to endure, will he recognize the man who emerges at its end?

Sir Lennox Brodie has willingly relegated his life as a powerful knight to the darkest recesses of his past. In turn, he has wholeheartedly embraced the comfortable, peaceful rhythm of life’s seasons at Brodie Manor with his wife Maggie, son Kendric, and the bairn they thought would never be.
When a messenger from Castle Wrought unexpectedly arrives, their life is thrown into chaos. War has erupted in Ireland, the king has responded to the call for aid, and he orders Lennox back into service. As old feelings resurface, Lennox wrestles with the life he left behind and the one he has come to love. Then fate, a silent and unwelcome visitor, steps in.
